Man presumed drowned off Kenosha shore

Man disappeared under water after jumping in

The U.S. Coast Guard said it’s suspended its search for a man presumed drowned in Lake Michigan off the Kenosha shore.

Fire officials said the man jumped in the water Monday evening with two other people near the North Pier, but then disappeared. Battalion Chief Ken Schroeder told the Kenosha News the water was choppy. Winds of 20-25 mph made the search difficult.

The Kenosha County Underwater Rescue and Recovery team also searched for the man. Kenosha firefighters suspended their search at dark, while the Coast Guard continued to patrol the area into the night.
